This is close to my heart. When I was very young I spent a summer in Romania. It was amazing how the class distinctions still exists. City folks look down on the peasants and the peasants look down on the gypsies. And they are so beautiful.
Thanks for posting this. I now have to watch the movie. I read thst it is a trilogy of gypsy life. I was surprised that it doesn't look as if it covers Romania. That's surprising because there has always been a large population of gypsies in Romania.
I'm not really sure why this is anything more than a vocabulary complaint by the plaintiffs.
It is common usage to refer to refer to the U.S., as a whole, as the "State". We have a Secretary of State, who represents the national body politic overseas. We have a State Department, whose purpose is to serve those ends.
One of the /definitions/ of the word State is "a politically unified people occupying a definite territory; nation".
The only way those words could be read, and NOT be understood to also refer to the State as encompassing all of the governments operating within the space of the exchanges, is to be either willfully ignorant of the definition of the word and the signifigance of the capital S that starts it, or to assume that the authors of the law meant to refer only to the 50 subdivisions of the United States, and that all of the references to the Federal government are an accident.
Tantaros always looks like she just smelled something bad. Maybe it's the toxic atmosphere at Fox. It must suck to be that pissed off all the time.
Hell, there are already people blaming Obama for not getting a Plan B ready; if those citizens die, it'll be on him for not having a backup plan versus the people tho destroyed Plan A and will inevitable insist any Plan B is unconstitutional anyway.
